Belfast Healthy City Bursary 2014 Awarded

The inaugural bursary was awarded to Anne McNally, an officer from the Health Protection policy branch at the Department of Health Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS). She travelled to Oslo to learn about their experience of implementing a new Public Health Act and examine ways in which learning from Norway could be applied to inform policy in Northern Ireland.

Anne presented her findings at the Belfast Healthy Cities Annual General Meeting in December.
